Ragnar Relay, Zion Utah
Well in a week and a half I am off on another racing adventure, the Ragnar Zion Utah. ( www.ragnartrail.com/locations/zion-ut ) The race is 200km of trail running over 24 hours….. in a team. We chose to run a team of four instead of eight so it is my wife Kate, and two of her Vega colleagues: Kathryn & Amelia.
So it breaks down to 50km each over three legs, approx 17km per leg. I figure that we will have about 5-6 hours of rest in between each leg, but, we will see once we know more about the terrain / elevation / weather and quite frankly how fast we are! In between legs everyone in the race camps together so I am predicting a fun environment to meet people--if sleep is not an option. Which it may not be haha
There will be two other teams from Vega down there so things may get a bit competitive, but, at the end of the day this team event is about the experience so I am going to be on my least competitive behavior. This is rare for me !! The carrot at the end of the race is a house rented in Vegas!! Look for my blog post after the race where I will have a full race report.
